Here is an assortment of ideas for teaching colors in a most delicious way–with jelly beans. Jelly beans come in a variety of colors and are wonderful for introducing
children to jellybeans.  Have each child take a jelly bean. Have each child to hold up his jelly bean when you name its color.  Once each child is sure of his bean’s color, have him eat it!  then sing this silly son.  As each different color word is substituted, encourage the children who ate a bean of that color to stand up and rub their tummies.

Jelly beans in my tummy!
